Oshiomhole was reported to have dismissed the cancellation of the Lagos governorship primary held on Tuesday.The National Working Committee Panel responsible for the primary had earlier cancelled the primary and called for a fresh one on Wednesday.

But briefing newsmen shortly after meeting president Buhari behind the closed door, Oshiomhole said the conduct of the primary was in order. He affirmed the result, thereby laying to rest the controversy that has trailed the primaries.

‘Everything is being done under the control of and supervision and directions of the NWC.

‘All that is good to go on, direct primaries, and everything is being done to ensure that there is no violence, that it is very potent.

‘Democracy doesn’t flourish with violence and Nigerians must begin to learn how to differ in opinion and in choice without fighting. At least something people have to acquire over time.

‘And for me, I am excited that if we can do it in Lagos, we can do it anywhere.

‘Very ordinary people are determined whether a governor should run again or not run again. So, nobody is going to take anybody for granted.

‘Our democracy has to grow and move on; we must keep innovating, we must keep changing, we must keep digitalizing so that over time, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

‘We can grow to a level that Nigerians will really have a sense of ownership of the democratic process.’
